What great days are made of

This has been one of those shiny, yellow, glowing days. Truly a great, great day. John let me sleep in this morning, which would have made it a great day in itself, but, oh my friends, it did not stop there. John taught Zoey "cheese" while I was sleeping. Look at those chubby cheeks! Love them!
We then loaded up the babe and headed downtown. I have a workshop ALL next week at Rice, so my precious husband drove me down there so I would know exactly where to go. Zoey fell asleep for little while, so the trip was pretty peaceful. When Zoey awoke, we took her to the Children's Museum. She was in toddler heaven in the 2 and under area. Driving her first car

Scoping out the toddler area with daddy
There was plenty for our little monkey to climb on!

Zoey's favorite thing was walking up and down the little trail that stairs and bumps. She got daring and wanted to run over the bumps, but only with daddy's help!
We had to wear booties on our feet. I felt stupid at first, but then I looked at all the other parents with booty clad feet, and I felt a little better.

Having so much fun in the tunnel. This time we we did not get stuck.
That museum is one cool place! I can't wait to take Zoey back when she can appreciate all the different exhibits. Heck, I'll enjoy them too! Z and Dad in a phone booth at the museum
After we wore Zoey out, John took me to Bubba's Texas Burger Shack. I heard about this place on Food Network awhile ago, and I have been itching to go ever since. John has gone without me a few times (grrr), but I finally got to experience the beauty of a buffalo burger. As a good 'ol southern girl, I have eaten my fair share of burgers, and this was definitely one of the best. To round out the meal, we stopped by the Chocolate Bar for some dessert. I am personally a lover of S'mores, and to my delight, they had S'more ice cream! It was the best ice cream I have ever put in my mouth.Chocolate ice cream with marshmellows and chocolate covered graham crackers-my taste buds were dancing. We brought some goodies home with us too. Zoey was a monster from her lack of nap when we got home, so she crashed super early, and John and I got to enjoy some homemade fried rice compliments of the hubs himself. Now I am sitting her anticipating watching HP6 with the brother. Seriously, the perfect day!

That does sound like a great day. I have to tell you...of all the pictures I have seen of Zoey those pictures are the first ones where I can actually say "holy cow is that Ashley or her kid?" Seriously..sooooo cute.
